so I think I understand that with the MyT and Mx+ you can start tracking an object in the eastern sky and track through 2 hours past the meridian, unless you set a limit earlier than that for instance to prevent damage.
question, can you slew to an object 2 hours !ahead! of the meridian and track through zenith until local horizon limit in the west? I want to do that to avoid a meridian flip in the middle of an important sequence.
The Flip Mount Now command is what you'd use.

So do you have to goto the object first on the ‘correct’ side and then flip mount?
I guess that wouldn’t be too mich ‘overhead’ but it would still take some time to do. Better than interrupting a session with a flip. At least it’s possible. Thanks for the reply!
